Hamlets Lettings - Landlords

Skip To Content


Our aim since 1991 has always been to provide a service that exceeds expectations. Much can be read about “cheap” deals that turn out not to be so. The press has highlighted the “hidden” fees problem for several years but at Hamlets we have always prided ourselves on the “inclusiveness” of our service and charges. Ordinary things like the inventory, folder of information for the tenant, most maintenance arrangements are included in our fees. You can see from our list exactly what is included in the services we provide.

We believe that trust and fairness foster the best working relationship between landlord and agent. Our management system helps give us the control we require but we feel that it is the directors Maureen and Elaine who are the core of the integrity based service that Hamlets provide and what clients who have been with us for some years have come to expect.

We are members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme and adhere strictly to code of conduct guidelines for letting Agents. We have Client Money Protection in place. Details of both of these can be viewed as follows: www.tpos.co.uk and www.clientmoneyprotect.co.uk.
